Union Rallies To Tie Real Salt Lake 2-2

CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Maurice Edu scored on a header off Cristian Maidana’s corner kick in the 90th minute to give the Philadelphia Union a 2-2 tie with Real Salt Lake on Saturday.

Newcomer Andrew Wenger also scored for Philadelphia (1-1-4), tying it at 1 in the 55th minute.

Kyle Beckerman scored in the 85th minute for Salt Lake. Luke Mulholland also scored for RSL, which improved to 2-0-4 — the best start through six games in franchise history.

Mulholland’s goal came in the aftermath of a frenetic series.

Forward Olmes Garcia was fouled in the crease by Philadelphia defender Austin Berry and the result was a penalty kick. Alvaro Saborio’s subsequent shot was saved by goalkeeper Zac MacMath, who also stopped a penalty kick last week in a 2-2 draw at Chicago. But the ball bounced off MacMath and Mulholland scored.

The Union traded forward Jack McInerney to the Montreal Impact this week for Wenger, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 MLS SuperDraft.
